According to various sources, among others an article published by The Guardian and written by Tom Horan in November 2012, Paul McCartney bought from John Duff Lowe the original acetate in 1981. The acetate was taken to Abbey Road and was restored, removing pops and clicks. A small private pressing on thick vinyl of approximately 50/55 copies was made. 20/25 10 inches 78 rpm and 25/30 7 inches 45 rpm (this listing refers to the latter). The labels were an accurate reproduction of the original, with no mention of The Quarrymen. Each pressing was then housed in a reproduction of a die-cut Parlophone sleeve. It is said that some of these copies were given to George and Ringo at Christmas.
